If you’re a tradie DIY-ing your finances and tax returns, it might be time to rethink your situation. Hiring an accountant saves you a lot of headaches and offers other potential benefits to you and your entire business.
Submitting your tax return can be a complex and frustrating business. An accountant can prepare your tax return, financial reports, and all necessary paperwork to go with it. An accountant will ensure you get the best possible tax refund. That’s because they know exactly what you can claim as a tradie. They also prevent you from over-claiming, which could result in fines or tax audits in more severe cases.
The most important aspect of having a business is adherence to state, federal, and local regulations. They are the most crucial component of owning a business, which may be difficult and frustrating when tax regulations are constantly updating. Trying to stay ahead of these developments and understanding their ramifications is critical for keeping your company out of trouble and ready to remain in the market. These constant regulatory changes may force your expanding trade firm into a new tax category with its own obligations. This is when accounting services for tradies come in handy.
If you find yourself spending an excessive amount of time dealing with the accounts, now might be the time to think about hiring an accountant. By offloading all the hard work to them, you free up your time to get back to doing the things you love, whether that’s picking up the tools or finally getting to spend some quality time with your family.
Outside of your usual business hours, you might be ordering stock, striking up a new business or taking care of your website. On top of this, your work-life balance must work for you, and spending time relaxing with family and friends should be part of any business owner’s schedule. Sorting your taxes and organising your finances are just extra tasks on that never-ending to-do list, and if your time is stretched, hiring an accountant to deal with this side of your business could be absolutely worthwhile.
Accountants can also help when it comes to keeping your business on the right side of the law. Many different legislation regulates the self-employed, and understanding it all could be tricky. For example, some business owners fail to take out employers’ liability insurance for their employees, despite this being the law. They can also help when deciding which legal structure is right for your business. If you’re a sole trader, they may inform you that you’d be wise to switch to a limited company set-up. Aside from moving liability away from your finances, this can sometimes also help cut costs and increase your profitability.
Outsourcing your bookkeeping to a specialised bookkeeping firm means you have access to a team of bookkeepers who can take on the extra work required as your business expands. They can also provide you with other accounting services such as payroll, accounts payable management, accounts receivable management, management accounting & reporting and cash flow management.
